The Premier A/S is an impressive tire that nails our tests in wet and dry braking and cornering, and this 3-season tire even has a nifty trick up its sleeve. The EverGrip Tech has expanding Rain Grooves that circle the tire widen as the tire wears, and Emerging Grooves start to open up across the shoulder block so water dispersion continues to occur, maximizing traction. In both wet and dry testing, we found that the tire allowed for excellent braking and cornering, while rolling resistance and road noise scored in the "very good" category to aid in mileage and on-road quietness.

"Very capable all-round tire, predictable and easy to control at limit. Biggest weakness is ice."

?Summer vs Winter Tests

BRAKING

We varied our approach speeds by driving surface and by season for two reasons. First, this represents how most Canadians would normally drive on that surface in each season. Second, testing in both seasons provides an indication of how a tire's performance will be affected by road temperature.

CORNERING

To understand how road surface temperatures affect the cornering performance of a tire, our cornering tests are completed in both summer conditions (dry and wet pavement, and gravel roads) and winter conditions (dry, wet and icy pavement). Please note that slush is also tested but completed in a specific slush cornering test..

?Independent & Objective Testing

The independent tire testers conducted extensive tests to determine how the tires in our core line-up perform in a range of conditions in both summer and winter. To maintain neutrality, no driver knew the specifics of the tires they were testing each time. All results were analyzed and processed by the testing group and then provided to Kal Tire for sharing with our customers.

They have a good name even though they are more expensive tires on the market, but they will last longer.

I have driven them for maybe 400 Km. Pleasant ride, no issues with them yet, but have not really tested them - hard cornering, braking, heavy rain, etc. It does not make much sense to review them this early, I have no idea what kind of wear and tear there is going to be down the road, either. But so far, so good.
